This is a rock-solid offering, featuring dark currant and mulled raspberry fruit, laced with light savory and tobacco notes. Ends with a focused mix of fruit and cedar on the pleasantly grippy finish. Drink now through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 7,124 cases made.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and features a wonderfully vibrant nose of red and black cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants with touches of rose petals, spice box and tilled soil. The medium to full-bodied palate offers crunchy black fruit with a firm structure of grainy tannins and just enough freshness on the savory finish.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District is a beautiful, classic wine that does everything right. Black cherries, blackberries, licorice, scorched earth, and graphite notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant, balanced Cabernet that shows the classic, straight style of the vintage nicely. It has solid structure and will put on weight with short-term cellaring, and should have 10-15 years of prime drinking.

Softened with the addition of 25% Merlot, this wine offers a combination of power with grace. Touches of tar, petrol and rocky mineral start this off on the nose. It's shows robust and tightly grained tannins on the palate, with a bold shock of blue fruit and cinnamon.
